same day teeth-management of post-surgery pain/swelling

In a recent article (J Oral Maxillofac Surg 71:1490-1499,2013), a group of maxillofacial surgeons showed that the use of bupivacaine (a long lasting anesthetic) and steroids decreased the amount of pain and swelling after the removal of wisdom teeth.
